Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

What's in my wallet:

NPSL ($10k approved)
$5k (EMV - Chip & PIN)

Don't do it unless you actually need it.  It's not worth the HP.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

Well, my one year annivesary since getting my first credit card is officially next week. I recieved increases(after request) on my 3 original cards: Discover More, Capital One Journey, and Citi Forward in November but the $1,000 limits are still small and would like them to grow a bit more this year. My 2 newest cards I got in December : Chase Freedom($1,500) and Citi Dividend($2,500) will be getting high usage for the next few months as they are now my highest limits and hope they continue to grow (hopefully through auto-increases but I'm willing to take the hits near the summer) I have a question that I hope someone can answer :smileyhappy:

 

1) What is the minimum timeframe between CLIs on Discover, Citi, and Capital One?

Typically a recommended mimimum of 6 months for both Discover and Citi. Not so sure on Capital One, considering they don't give out CLI easily XD

Capital One Quicksilver World Mastercard $10k | JCPenney Platinum $7.5k | Shell Drive for Five $800 | Chase Freedom Visa Signature $9.8k | TD Bank Easy Rewards Visa Signature $5k | Chase Sapphire Visa Signature $10k | American Express Blue Sky $25k | Discover IT $9.5k | SavingStar American Express $14.8k

I hear you on Capital One. On another note, I wish Citi and Discover would show some auto-increases to me. I ran close to $5,000 through each before I got the $500 increases that also ended up being 1 hard pull from both Citi and Discover. I requested an APR reduction this month from Discover since it will be a year and hope they lower my APR (I never carry a balance unless it goes for utilization of 1-9%) but would like to have it lower just in case. I also wish they would give me some auto increase as well on my next statement but I'm giving up hope on any auto-increases from them.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

Well, I stepped out of the garden for a moment.  It was a successful departure and will serve a purpose.  Would have earned a silver spade Jan 28.  Oh well, I still haven't figured out how to get the graphic in my sig. None the less, back to cultivation. Hopefully my stay will be long and fruitful.  Seedling reporting for duty.
